The Picture Rail Hanging System
A Discreet Picture Hanging Solution
The Traditional Picture Rail System, as the name suggests, works with original or new timber rails as found in Victorian style homes. Modern design picture rail hooks fit over the wooden rail allowing you to hang artworks one under the other and move art around as required.
High quality picture rail hooks in solid brass or stainless steel, combined with stainless steel or unobtrusive clearline hangers will add a traditional look to your display and secure your artwork the way a modern system should. The improved design of the hooks positions the cable much closer to the wall, which means the pictures will sit at the proper angle rather than leaning too far forward as they do with old fashioned solutions. The brass hooks are clear coated to prevent tarnishing. Don’t forget to order the hooks to support the artwork.

Everyone who has had anything to do with hanging the exhibition has raved about the ease with which your system worked plus the lighting. The latter also came from our audience to date plus some artists who have seen our website. So you have plenty of kudos there.– Peter Boyle, The Channon Gallery
Just a quick message to thank you for your superb service. We have received your fabulous track system in a super fast time Your service is greatly appreciated as we are now finalising the gallery walls. Looking forward to using your systems in the future!– Wayne, The Gentleman’s Apartment
At Dickerson Gallery we have been using The Gallery System for over 20 years. As a product it has evolved with our needs over that time. Because our gallery is located in a National Trust registered building with elaborate cornice work, we required an unobtrusive hanging system that would allow for rapid, “one person” changeovers of artworks. The Gallery System product allows us to do just that. We currently have the hanging track (in white) and we use the stylish stainless steel hangers and fittings to complement. This gives the display space a professional appearance and the product fits in so well with the space. It makes the gallery a flexible and easily worked space which is ideal.– Dickerson Gallery, Woollahra
The installer was so lovely and helpful today – thanks for organising so quickly, I really appreciated it!– Rebecca, Tigress Furniture
The hanging system is brilliant!– Peta Dixon (Slimline System, home use)
The Slimline track looks fantastic, it blends in beautifully with my white ceiling and cream walls.. In fact, I’ll have to draw the family’s attention to it or they might not notice. Your installer did a great job at setting the tracks flush with the cornices. I’m waiting until next week when I have more spare time to go berserk hanging pictures. Thanks again Lisa, I’m really pleased with the result.– Helen, Home use
The Gallery System was easy to install and looked fantastic! We transformed the space from nothing into a beautiful gallery in one day. The owners of Rawnsley Park Station were very impressed, so it made us look good too! The exhibition opening was awesome. Thank you!– Catherine Bourne, Visual Artist
Hi Lisa, I just wanted to say a big thank you again for helping me with my lighting set up. I love them. I have finally got around to taking a picture and have attached it for you so you can see the finished product.– Sarah Streets Studios, Brisbane
The Gallery System were responsible for providing the hanging system for the last St Joseph’s College Art Show. Lisa and her team from The Gallery System were very supportive throughout the process and Lisa’s professionalism and knowledge of the system was evident at every meeting. They demonstrated their ability to meet our specific needs and install a system to meet our specifications.– Donna, St Josephs College Art Show Committee
I just love my Gallery System and have it installed though out my home, studio, and gallery spaces. The Gallery System gives me flexibility to change up my hang at any time and store multiple works on a wall. Recently I launched a rug collection with Design Rugs Australia and at the opening exhibition event we even hung the rugs from the system. I even use the gallery system within my studio instead of an easel, this gives me the ability to work on multiple works at a time at any height/level I need depending on the work.– Lara Scolari Gallery, Balmain
We have had wonderful service from The Gallery System over many years and many hospital art projects from the very large to small, always with prompt supply and excellent pricing. The Slimline Track with security hooks has proved itself over and over. We trust the hanging of very valuable art works to their 1st class product.– Malcolm Cook, Health and Research Centre
